Wounded Heroes Documentary Brings Hope to Our Military, First Responders, and Everyone Battling Post Traumatic Stress During Men

Wounded Heroes Documentary Brings Hope to Our Military, First Responders, and Everyone Battling Post Traumatic Stress During Mental Health Awareness Month

Released by Gier Productions, LLC, this new film, dedicated to saving lives, shines a light on bold new alternative non-drug treatments and programs that heal the wounds of PTS

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The new Wounded Heroes Documentary reveals the reality PTS sufferers face as they speak out about their mistreatment by the healthcare system, the medications that are making them worse and the amazing new proven therapies that are giving them back their lives.

An alarming statistic by the Department of Veterans Affairs reports anywhere from 17 to 22 veteran suicides every single day.

This suicide rate among veterans continues to rise, despite recent prevention efforts. On top of this, mental health experts believe suicide rates among veterans are only getting worse because the most recent data doesn't take the current pandemic into account.

Many feel it does not need to be this way, especially as we dig into these issues during National Mental Health Awareness and Military Appreciation Month in May.

After learning about the suicide rate and the serious side effects of overmedicating veterans, California filmmaker, Michael Gier, went on a mission to find successful alternative non-drug treatments that restore lives from the destruction of PTSD.

"Post-Traumatic Stress among our veterans is a serious problem," said Gier. "Most are given prescription medications, or drug cocktails as many call them, some of these prescriptions are black labeled with serious side effects."

Gier, who traveled all over the country interviewing veterans, military brass, politicians, doctors, and other experts, said many veterans feel medication is just a band-aid over a wound that will never heal.

"Our veterans deserve so much more than just a band-aid and that is what inspired me to create this film," said Gier.

Wounded Heroes Documentary is a three year passion project, funded primarily by Michael Gier and his wife Terri Gier, and features life changing options that give those suffering from PTS hope, potentially saving lives.

"These men and women served our country for years and the best we can do is give them drugs; some as many as eighteen different prescriptions, forty pills a day?!" said Gier. "I knew there had to be better options."

In the film, Gier interviews health care professionals who are using alternative therapies that have been successfully proven to dramatically decrease their patients' medication or help them become completely PTS prescription free.

Gier said by creating the film he wanted to bring as much awareness as possible about these life changing treatments and that everyone suffering from PTS needed to know there were other options out there for them.

"These aren't just therapies that can help our soldiers and veterans," said Gier. "Firefighters, police officers, and first responders all deal with PTS, and even more people from all walks of life are being affected by COVID. These can benefit them too."

Veterans reported the alternative treatments helped change their lives significantly for the better. They say they went from contemplating suicide to finding happiness and gratitude in their daily lives.

"I feel alive again, I feel rejuvenated, I feel like a soldier again." -Kyle Green, US Army 1998 - 2008

"I'm happier today then I've ever been in my entire life." - Chuck Gardea, US Air Force 1989 – 2015, Firefighter/Paramedic 1998 - 2015

"I didn't even know this kind of happiness was possible." - Sherri Waters, US Army

"You can change your life around. And there is light at the end of the tunnel, I am proof." -Antonio Zavala, French Foreign Legion 1985 - 1990 / US Army 1992 - 2006

Dr. Shauna Springer, Ph.D., known as "Doc Springer" in the military community, is one of the nation's leading experts on trauma, military transition, and close relationships. She has become a trusted Doc to countless warfighters across the country and has gained the respect of warriors of all ranks. Her unique role has given her a deep understanding of warrior culture and the warfighter.

Dr. Springer is a proud advocate of the film.

"The feeling that Post-Traumatic Stress is a "life sentence" is killing warriors and people across America. Many have given up, but they need to know that there is life beyond trauma – not just survival, but a good life – a connected, emotionally fulfilling life. Wounded Heroes presents this life changing story of hope," said Dr. Springer.

The Wounded Heroes Documentary is available for streaming across multiple platforms including Amazon, iTunes, Google and more.

GIVING BACK: Gier just launched a "Sponsor a Hero" program that gives people the opportunity to purchase screenings that are then given to heroes at no cost. It's a great way for people to pay it forward as a thank you in appreciation for all they do.
